journalists with the help of 26,000 citizen journalists.It has a readership

has been profound, being credited by many with helping to elect South Korea's
new progressive president, Roh Moo-hyun.
- Center for Online Investigative
Research (COIR): COIR is working to give ordinary people the
tools to oversee their own government and, in doing so, to generate the news
they need to know to be informed voters. The organization is a catalyst for
a new kind of journalism, supporting busy but concerned citizens in their
efforts to gather the truth about those elected to represent us. Its nationwide
network aims to be one of the most effective, accurate, and non-partisan
news organizations available today.
for the Public Domain: The Center for the Public Domain is a
philanthropic foundation based in Durham, North Carolina, that seeks to call
attention to the importance of the public domain and spur effective, practical
solutions and responses. Its work is animated by the conviction that new
legal regimes, social institutions and transparent technologies must be created
to fortify the information commons. The Center for the Public Domain is enthusiastically
committed to this mission—and to the use of innovative philanthropy
and catalytic leadership to secure the future of the public domain.
Commons: Creative Commons uses private rights to create public
goods: creative works set free for certain uses. Like the free software and
open-source movements, Creative Commons' goals are cooperative and community-minded,
but our means are voluntary and libertarian. The organization works to offer
creators a best-of-both-worlds way to protect their works while encouraging
certain uses of them—or declare “some rights reserved.”
Thus, a single goal unites Creative Commons' current and future projects:
to build a layer of reasonable, flexible copyright in the face of increasingly
restrictive default rules.
and Politics: TruthAndPolitics.org is envisioned as a clearinghouse
for knowledge, an attempt to achieve economies of scale in the dissemination
and organization of information, both current and historical, relevant to
politics and public policy. The project’s primary long-term goal is
to help individuals access the current sphere of knowledge more efficiently
and avoid needless duplication of effort.
Wikipedia is a copyleft encyclopedia that is collaboratively developed using
wiki software. Wikipedia is managed and operated by the non-profit Wikimedia
Foundation. In addition to standard encyclopedic knowledge, Wikipedia includes
information more often associated with almanacs and gazetteers, as well as
coverage of current events. The content of Wikipedia is entirely created
by its users. No single person owns the content; no article is ever finished.
The license known as the GFDL is intended to ensure that everyone who can
accept that license has the right to use and improve the article.
